I am having trouble getting my Epson Perfection V100 Photo scanner to run under Ubuntu 12.04.
After I changed my Desktop it seems that I can't install the Epson Scanner.
Does anybody has an idea how I can fix this problem?
I have an Epson V350 Perfection Scanner running on Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. I could not get it to work with the latest drivers, but the following worked:
dpkg -i iscan-data_1.8.0-0_all.deb
dpkg -i iscan_2.26.2-1.ltdl7_i386.deb
dpkg -i iscan-plugin-gt-f700_2.1.0-3_i386.deb
These were files I downloaded and saved from a couple of years ago, where iscan is at version 2.26.2-1. The earliest version from avasys (http://avasys.jp/eng/linux_driver/download/) is 2.28 and this did not work for me. Version 2.29 does not install - it complains about missing dependencies libjpeg62 and libltdl3. When I tried to install these, I was told there was "no known source" for libltdl3. Version 2.29 is available from Epson here: http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/du/02/DriverDownloadInfo.do?LG2=EN&CN2=&DSCMI=20233&DSCCHK=e8c8d6c7f9da68399277d5eddbf8121aecda09d5
You must install these packages from the first link above in the correct order, by referring to this guide and this more detailed pdf here. There are 32 bit and 64 bit drivers available, so you must choose the right ones for your architecture- this is the 32 bit version given below, but the 64 bit ones will labelled similarly, but with amd64 instead of i386.
Install in the following order:
1) data package:
2) core packages: (from the Ubuntu 8.10 or later section)
This is probably your best hope, as your scanner model isn't properly supported in
The current downloads work on ubuntu 12.04 when also installing
and adding to
There are versions of iscan-data and iscan at https://github.com/hean01/iscan and https://github.com/hean01/iscan. I haven't tried these yet, but am putting this here in case someone finds it useful. If I wind up using them I will update.
